Yes. I was hoping to hear back from you and that you would be able to join. There are a couple other familiar Downers, Eomer and Kuru, I sent word out to that said they were interested in checking it out.

And I'll get an updated draft of everything that's been discussed here in the next day or so.

Boro, if there's just one day in the middle of the game when you can't make it to the deadline, I don't think that's a problem. I'm sure there has to be one 'downs ww player who can't/ doesn't want to play but would happily be your one time substitute mod and start the Day/Night if you leave them instructions.

I like the Beast Hunter; I'm not a big fan of the medium/representative thing to be entirely honest but that's just a personal preference - I think it would work nicely with this array of rules though.

As for the Nightmare wolf, I need to think about it a bit. My original fear was that we'd have a game where every Day some ordo claims to have been haunted and thus every Day the wolves have to decide whether they counter claim and put themselves in the spotlight or let it slip past and let the village have a "known innocent". That would really suck for the wolves. But the updated rules already look a lot more balanced.

I also think it would be interesting if the Nightmare wolf was a specific wolf and the wolves would need to strategize around sacrificing them.

PS. Wilwa and Nilp

Any chance I can request a slightly later deadline, say 10 pm GMT?

Welcome. And yes that was actually the time I was figuring on setting it, since it seems to be around then that works the best for everyone.

Except for our friends in the Phillipines ...but perhaps 6am is a little more manageable?

I updated a lot of the voting and general rules/Medium. I will be away for a bit today, but will get the rest of the specific roles set out later

Ok the first post on the thread has been updated with everything we discussed.

If I missed anything let me know.

I think we'll begin Night 1 either June 3rd or 4th. Deadline for both threads will be 10 pm GMT (6pm EST)

I think there may be 1 or 2 more who possibly decide to sign up. So, Huey and Kath if you decide that it's not too large of a village for you there's definitely room to join. Let me know!

Speaking for myself and not for another mouse-like being, I'm fine with any time. My circadian cycle is all messed up anyway, haha...

Anyway, a bit of digression. Well, probably an above-average amount. Mere hours after I joined, this game/png-gambling simulator I'm playing suddenly had an event involving Werewolf. Reality is a badly-written stage play, I swear...

(It also has Phantom. )

Sorry to be a party pooper, but I am not actually sure if I will be able to join this next game, especially with a big village. I will have to see how crazy my life is right before we start. Boro, could you please put me back under a questionmark?

I tried to be sensible, but even my wife says I should play, and who am I to argue with her? Also I'd bite myself in the butt, as we say in German, for missing this.

Welcome, welcome. Sounds like you married a very sensible person

Night 1 will be June 3rd @10 pm GMT. Roles will be sent out a few hours before then.

For my own wellbeing I think it's wiser for me to abstain this game, but I also see that we're just a couple players short of the cut off for the cool roles. I'm not gonna be the one to spoil that. I will drop out only if that doesn't affect the rules and roles.

Thank you for offering to step in, but Huey has said he would if no other vets return for a game. I think I've heard back from all of the ones I sent the game to, and Lhuna regrettably had to drop because her job has moved to not being work from home anymore.

Anyway, Huey was going to step in to give us 16, unless someone was going to surprise me tomorrow. So, if you'd still like to, you're definitely welcome, but don't feel responsible to join if there's other things going on that need your time and attention. I will say though that werewolf is usually a nice respite from RL for myself, not sure how others feel.

Roles will be PMed to everyone sometime Wednesday late afternoon. I'll be getting the Game Thread and Dead threads up and finished most likely tomorrow.

I am glad we have enough faces. In that case, I will step out and haunt the thread as a completely neutral spirit. Unless things change and you meed another person last minute, in which case sign me up at any point, and I'll make do.

Wilwa's informed me that she unfortunately had to withdraw do to a family emergency.

Formendacil has been the upstanding gentleman I remembered him to be (or it could be I just pulled his leg hard enough) and agreed to fill in her spot.
